The paper is intended to demonstrate the importance of a careful study of the ecology of work for an effective design of modern human-work interfaces and the need for cross-disciplinary analysis of the deep structure of particular work systems. The basis of purposeful activities and the problems met in analysis of adaptive systems are discussed. The importance of the intentional structures of work domains is discussed with reference to different kinds of work domains. Finally, the problem of human factors guidelines for design is reviewed and an alternative approach is suggested.
